I have a blog for which I use Blogger.com and have an embedded Google Map with pin drop locations showing.
This was created in Windows 7, however I`ve recently got a Chromebook and the blog map didn`t appear as before.
I tried to re-link it but it was coming up as an error.
I`ve had a fiddle but can`t get it to work.
Do any PC savvy funsters know how I might get this to work on my Chromebook please ?
TIA

I'm only guessing
Have you turned on location sharing?
Although Chrome is the native browser on a Chromebook, and it's Google maps - but have you tried using a different browser to access Google Maps?

I've learned that ChromeOS is more like Android, so the apps & software can be somewhat cut down compared to a fully fledged PC version...

I did wonder if it might be because Google maps on Chromebook is an app. and webpage on pc ? I'll have to try having another play with it later.
Thanks for input.

It might not be only your change to Chrome that is the problem. Until about a year ago my wife used an application that did multiple pin drops on Google Maps but the free facility seems to have been discontinued. She now has to use a website with a mapping facility that uses a different base map to get round the problem. The map is not as good but at least it works.

Windows 7 has been getting partial support (only security I think) for a while now so perhaps it was running an older version of Google Maps. Not a Windows user myself so?

More than toes wet now!
Possibly due to changes by Alphabet (the parent group of Google) to Google Maps back in mid 2018 where they withdrew \ tightened-up on free use of Maps on 3rd party websites.
Try searching Google Maps API changes for the background.
You might want to look at Open Street Maps as an alternative but not as good as Google.
